How to Join: For Career Mentors

All too often, under-experience in formal educational and professional settings leaves a significant proportion of Latino families under-equipped in their efforts to expose their children to the types of experiences and role-models that are proven to positively influence student self-expectations and performance. Many students do not have a personal point of reference for what it means to enroll and complete college. However, both CUNY and CBO-based partners report high levels of success when they have been able to identify committed professionals to speak with students and serve as role models.

CREAR Futuros will build on this premise and work to foster positive connections between college students and career-related role models.  Dedicated professionals will work to develop a career mindset in students by providing mentorships, nonprofit and private sector internships, and access to career networks.
